This home is a five-story red brick and limestone mansion that stands as a superb example of Neo Georgian revival architecture in America. Prominently positioned on the very lovely and quiet, tree-lined block of 69th Street between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, the residence has the good fortune of being situated amidst a number of architecturally noteworthy neighboring houses. Erected in 1881 by Charles Buek & Co. and then purchased in 1900 by Alice Gwynne Vanderbilt, the house was redesigned in 1929 for Edwin C. Jameson, a prominent insurance executive, and then finally acquired by the English-Speaking Union in 1956. Located in New York, NY | #Sothebys #VentureSIR
